USA SailGP Team ready for redemption

The United States SailGP Team has arrived in Plymouth, UK looking to climb the Season 2 standings at the Great Britain Sail Grand Prix this weekend, Saturday, July 17 through Sunday, July 18, in the third event of the global championships’ calendar.

Last month’s thrilling Italy Sail Grand Prix in Taranto ended in disbelief for the American team when it’s F50 catamaran suffered an underwater collision while leading and with the finish line in sight on the penultimate leg of the podium finals. With the taste of that narrow loss still fresh, the United States SailGP Team is more determined than ever to return to the water.

“We’ve seen that our team has what it takes to win races,” said U.S. SailGP Team Driver Jimmy Spithill. “That’s no small feat in a league as competitive as SailGP. Momentum is on our side and this team is confident that if we keep sailing as well as we have, good results will follow.”
